BMW M235i Motorsport!

So BMW just presented the M235i (which I love and must have), an amazing machine and a great package, most of us BMW fans consider it “The return of the beloved E46” can’t say the E46 M3 until we are sure that an M2 will come out (sources say it might actually come true), and now they came up with this. The BMW M235i  Racing Car!

I just wish I was able to get one, I’m sure it will be an absolute blast to drive and learn but I’m quite sure they won’t bring that to Mexico,… perhaps I have to move.
